Memory lapse!

Last Thursday I checked our blog site to see what was posted for the day. By evening I decided that the person who was supposed to post didn't have anything to say. On Monday, I asked Tina who forgot to post. When I got home I took another look at what day there wasn't a post and it was......Thursday! The person who didn't post was ME! LOL.

On Monday Tina and I helped a new weaver put together her new looms. We love doing this. The Tuesday Weavers are always ready to help move looms, pick up donations and put looms together. We are such a happy and fun bunch of weavers. Here is a picture of the latest loom to be put back together.

Isn't it a pretty loom? It is a Leclerc from the 1980's and it is in pristine condition.

At my studio I have been weaving a scarf using sock yarn. This yarn is so soft already. I can't wait to see how it does after washing.

I am also weaving a table runner using some very thick wool yarn. It is a pale green with flecks of dark green in it. I think, for the next runner, I will weave this yarn with stripes of white thick wool yarn.

The mug rugs are off the loom and one was given as a gift to a friend who wanted one. Next I will warp that loom for dish towels. My inventory of dish towels is really low.

Today will be spent cleaning our home ( I would rather be weaving!) and putting a warp on my Leclerc Dorothy for more mug rugs.

Max. Remember Max? Here is the latest picture. Don't look at me! Just look at Max. LOL. Isn't he big? He had just turned six months old a few days before this picture was taken. He is as big as our last yellow lab!

Well, that is all I have for today. I hope you all have a wonderful day. The weather here is wonderful. It will be warm and sunny. A great day to open the windows and let some fresh air in.

Max has grown so much! I'm also glad to hear that he takes his job very seriously! I really love the way the Tuesday Weavers support each other and offer such good weaving (and life!) advice!!! We are very lucky!
